MSR Pocket Rocket Stove

Item #: 87758

Our Price: $39.95

This compact and powerful butane stove is the lightest MSR stove ever made. Made with high quality stainless steel, aluminum and brass, the PocketRocket is durable and maintenance free. Simple in design, this stove requires no preheating, priming or pressurizing - just twist the control valve and light. It quickly delivers a steady, hot flame that users can adjust to simmer or boil. Serrated pot supports prevent pots from slipping and fold in for packing. Designed for use with MSR IsoPro?: Premium blend fuel for maximum efficiency, the PocketRocket also fits other threaded butane canisters. Great for overnight climbs, light multi-day alpine ascents or expedition high camps. Includes a compact, super tough carry case.

        Was surprised how fast this burner brought water to a boil. Much faster than my old one. Like the plastic case which comes with it (covers sharp edges).

          Been using it for a year on boy scout hiking/camping trips. Very fuel efficient. Does a good job of frying and boiling water. I use the Coleman gas canisters that fit the Coleman Max backpack micro stove. No problem finding them. I can't imagine camping/hiking without this stove.

                          The MSR Rocket uses MSR isobutane fuel. Campmor does not send fuel mail order. The Campmor store in Paramus NJ has the fuel for sale.

                          The 8oz. MSR canisters weigh 13.1 oz., and the 3.9 oz canister weighs 7.4 oz.- You can buy these at local stores since Campmor does not ship fuel canisters.

                          Camping GAZ is popular over in Europe. We recommend the MSR Superfly ( item # 87754 ) for those canister fuel fittings.
